buffer overrun detected! program:\??\c:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe
Posted on 2009-04-14
I get the error in the title
"Buffer overrun detected!
A buffer overrun has been detected which ahs corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated."
when starting windows, just before the ordinary log in screen would appear. I have the option to click okay, and then the system reboots.
I have pulled the drive and run a full chkdsk /r, no problems found. I have run three separate virus scans with no viruses found. Visual inspection makes windows look in tact and healthy. I tried a repair install and it did not change anything. I also tried a reimage that did not change anything. I can't boot into any version of windows (safe mode, directory services repair, etc)
Anybody have any idea about this error, or how to get rid of it?
